Scholarships in Nigeria to study abroad 2019

Undergarduate Scholarship by Nigerian Women Association of Georgia (NWAG)

In 2000, Mrs. Dayo Keshi invited a handful of dynamic Nigerian women to her residence to discuss how we could combine our efforts to impact the lives of Nigerians at home and abroad. Many of the women gathered were accomplished individuals who belonged to various community organizations. The birth of NWAG was to combine our efforts and harness our talents as Nigerian women, in service to accomplish more in our communities.

As an annual practice, The Nigerian Women Association of Georgia is calling for application for the 2019 scholarship for female undergraduates in Nigeria.
